Bruce Schell, PhD. was a Clinical Psychologist in private practice in Asheville, North Carolina. He was a professor at the Medical School of the University of South Carolina for many years, but later went to enjoy the cool weather and mountains of Western North Carolina. Bruce was a published poet and writer, and, of course, a dog lover. Bruce was married to Kay Loveland, the Director of Camp Unleashed Asheville. He led a workshop called "Puppy Tales" and his hope was to help people express their bonds with dogs in poetry or story.
